Houghton Cycling Club was established in 1932 and is therefore one of the oldest cycling clubs in North East England.
The club is open to everyone, whatever your cycling interests and whatever your age, experience or ability. We cater for many different types of cycling including social, road racing, time trials, touring, mountain, audax and cyclo-cross.
We organise a very popular Sunday club run program which includes several ride options each week. Have a look at the club run section of the website!
We promote a number of events throughout the year, including a series of 10 mile time trials, a reliability trial, circuit racing on the Nissan test track, the acclaimed Houghton Feast cyclo cross event at Hetton Park and the popular “Quarrington Hill Climb” competition in October.
The club is very active in road and Cyclo-cross racing scene with a number of members competing at a high level. However, we are keen to support anybody wishing to try racing for the first time, whether that be circuit racing or time trials.
Some members have chosen to specialise in Open Time Trials. The club is affiliated to Cycling Time Trials and other regional and national bodies including British Cycling, Northumberland & Durham Cycling Association.
Members can join in with various social events including the club meeting which takes place every Friday evening between 7.30 & 9.30pm at Cocken Lodge Golf Club, near Finchale Abbey (Post code DH4 6QP).
Other events of note include the annual awards presentation in November and the Christmas Lunch Club Run in December.
